I'm thinking about a Clement x Kuerten play.

FERRER and CLEMENT are bankers ..dunno their odds though

adk
04-06-2005, 09:55 PM
Yeah. I'm looking at a Ferrer x Clement x Kuerten treble, at about 2.55.

How many wins do you guys reckon Kuerten has in him in Valencia?

Clement @ 1,45.

No odds on Ferrer yet.

Ferrer @ 1.3 something around that

I dunno yet ... his Comeback was impessive against O.Rochus who is known as a big fighter ... Kuerten at his best would be having no problems with Beto... I m going to back him ..as his fan i have to .. LOL... VAMOS GUGA

adk
04-06-2005, 10:02 PM
In my opinion, the following are going to win tomorrow:

Vanek
Mayer
Puerta
Clement

Kuerten
Ferrer
Starace

Good luck! :lol: :wavey:

And to you. Pretty confident with it.

Might hit a treble too with Ferrer in there. Take the odds from about 2.00 to 2.50

I use William Hill, and got Clement at 1.33 and Kuerten at 1.5.

Clement is looking more like the player he was a couple of years back!

Zib @ 1.83

This price looks extremely generous. Tomas Zib is playing against the poorer of the two Rochus brothers. Christophe has struggled to win matches on the ATP Tour for almost 18 months, where Zib is playing his best Tennis and is effectively at his peak. Zib leads 2-0 in H2H, and looks a much more accomplished player on the slower clay courts. I should think Zib's price will shorten before the match on Friday afternoon.

Puerta @ 1.71 looks a good bet for Thursday!

Any opinions on this match?

Tempted by Zib but will pass

Anyone know how Gicquel plays?
Is he a fighter, scrambler, any weapons on clay?
Cheers

I'm on:

Clement x Kuerten - double (big stake)

Clement x Puerta x Mayer - treble (smaller stake)

Don't normally like overlapping in different bets, but I think Clement will sweep Gicquel

04-07-2005, 08:55 AM
Im ON Clement x Kuerten - Double 2 (big ;)

Single on Jiri Vanek

04-07-2005, 08:56 AM
also on first set Gustavo Kuerten 6-2 @$8.00

Bit of a gamble there, unless you also cover 6-3, 6-4.

I don't like those sort of bets... you never know who's going to be serving first!!

bg, did you notice before backing Mattin that he has masters qulification which will begin on saturday... money prize and race points in masters cannot be compared to that are in valencia... and guga seems to be ok,and beto played poorly against montanes... dunno, but it seems to me that martin would either choke to go to qualies or guga will just outpower him...

fenildave
04-07-2005, 09:30 AM
Hey BG anyway who r u backing tonight on Andreev and Guga ?

SwiSha
04-07-2005, 09:38 AM
Andreev over Starace ..Going with Igor...he is the better player overall and he really can light it up on clay..considering the fact that Starace must be tired at this point after playing 7 matches in 9 days

Ferrer over Ladadze .... do i have to explain?

Mayer over Monaco ... I believe in Mayer his confidence is back on track after his great tourny in Miami ...back on his favorite surface with a convincing win over Ulihrach...his unorthodox play will be too much for Monaco 2 handle who had problems winning his match against GRANDPA Sabguinetti

Vanek over Simon .... although Simon beat Acasuso 2 days ago .. i think its going to be all vanek here....h2h is speaking fr itself with Jirir leading 2-0 and both wins on clay the last a week ago in Napoli

Clement over Giquel ...Arnaud is in great shape ... competitive player with good results in Miami beating berdych and Lopez... good win over Horna who is not the worst claycourter on this tour

GUGA - BETO

Beto is a great clay courter and fighter and will not give this match away up easily without a big fight..my big concern here is Guga's physical condition.. sweet win over Rochus ..still this one will be a big test for him ... i decided no bet for me ...
Betos odds are high and worth a shot so i can understand why some are pickin Martin here

No bet just wanna cheer for my favorite player without having money on it !!!!

Good Luck to all

i did take that into consideration dim - however lets be honest, although ollie has had a great year so far, he is not a dirtballer so i think people are jumping the gun on guga's form at this stage

beto is tough and is playing in spain - i don;t think kuerten is going to run away with as many expect, nice and close for me and hoping home crowd will get beto over the line :)

Mate, tell me about it. I was on Guga and Mayer... both didn't get even get close to winning.

Have you got any other plays?

Definitely looking at Zib tomorrow... value at about 1.80. And Petrova?
